Urine sodium levels are often tested if someone has abnormal
blood sodium levels. This can be the result of taking in
too much sodium, or losing too much sodium. If you have
high blood pressure from eating too much salt, the test may be
given to check your blood sodium levels.
This test is often ordered if you show symptoms of hyponatremia,
which include feelings of weakness or confusion. It's also
recommended for people who show signs of hypernatremia, which
are muscle twitches, increased thirst, or less frequent
nearest you today, no appointment needed. Insurance is not
required, but call 225-389-5020 to find out if your health
plan will cover this test.
